We started National Widow’s Day to help bring the cause of the widow and widower back to the attention of Christians in our city and nation. God expresses His love and care for the orphan and widow throughout the Bible, so National Widow’s Day is one small way we honor the widows we know. To celebrate, each year we hold the National Widows Day Banquet to encourage and enjoy some time together. We have had many wonderful celebrations including a Luau, a Sock Hop with Car Show (and rootbeer floats!) and even a formal Banquet with a dance.
For 2019 we threw a roaring twenties themed party… and it was an absolute blast! We had amazing volunteers serve food and drinks, wonderful food and a live “big band” as the backdrop for our lively dance floor. Many of our lovely widow friends came in style in a full stretch limo. Our silent auction sold out and we took a chance to honor the business, clubs and friends who volunteer their time and resources every week to help Widow Wednesday serve the greater Kansas City
